"A certain type"

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles ) | Nov 05, 2003

Today President Bush signed into law a bill banning "a certain type of abortion," the AP news story tells us.

By "a certain type" of abortion, they mean partial-birth abortion. But the abortion industry doesn't approve of that term, and AP is kowtowing, as usual, to the pro-abort crowd.

In this case, however, the effect is downright comical.

If the virus of political-correctness infects other areas of the newsroom, consider the other headlines that might soon appear:

  • "US Marines meet a certain type of unpleasantness in Iraq"
  • "Leading economic indicators show a certain type of good news"
  • "Super Bowl yields a certain type of result"

Ah, journalistic standards. You gotta love them.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    Let's just all get it straight and leave the neo-modernistic "new-speak" behind, he banned MURDER! The Supreme Court is welcome to their own delusions, but I will have none of it!
